John Emil, an accomplished singer/songwriter, guitarist, and a master of slide guitar, has delivered show stopping performances at major music festivals like the Telluride Blues and Brews Fest, The Florida Folk Festival, and the Decatur Blues and Bluegrass Festival while performing throughout the United States and Europe.
Equally adept with the acoustic Hawaiian lap steel guitar and Dobro, Emil first appeared on the South Florida music scene in 2000. Fans hear haunting, subtle hints of Delta bluesmen Son House and Blind Willie Johnson, but Emil ultimately creates a unique style all his own by integrating country blues, folk, bluegrass and lush Hawaiian sounds into his repertoire.
Routinely taking the lost art of slide guitar in a new direction, Emil has composed a wealth of slide guitar tracks for media production libraries. Among the many television and cable network shows Emil has supplied music for are The Voice, Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations, and several international wildlife and nature documentaries.
John has performed in music venues and festivals throughout the United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Belgium and the Netherlands.
